Kōrero: Te orokohanga mai o te ao

Kei roto i te whare whakairo

Kei roto i te whare whakairo

He rite a Te Tumu Herenga Waka ki ngā whare whakairo puta noa, arā, whakaatatia ai te orokohanga o te ao. Ko Ranginui te tuanui, ko Papatūānuku te papa. Ko ngā pou ka rite ki ngā pou i mahia e Tāne hei toko i a Rangi ki runga e uru ai he māramatanga ki te ao. Ko te kōrero, ka kuhu koe ki te whare, kei te whakatata koe ki ōu tīpuna.
